"mother jones" studied this and they did not find a single instant. republicans hide behind the second amendment to stop gun control and the american people, i think, are stick of it. let's turn to alex wagner host of "now" and jonathan alter, msnbc political analyst and columnist for "bloomberg view." alec, we always hear this coming out from the right supplied by the nra. is this time different? >> i think it's different this time and an acknowledgement that this is a line in the sand. the argument of the teacher theory or proposal is a new level
